OLDEST BOMBER VET HAILS WAR TRIBUTE Archie, 97, is delighted as Queen opens memorial Report by

Archie Johnstone, who navigated more 50 wartime bombing missions, pictured with a Lancaster Bomber at a squadron reunion.

Henry James

THE oldest surviving member of RAF Bomber Command who lives in West Lancashire has welcomed the memorial to his brave comrades after years of waiting. Archie Johnstone, 97, was unable to attend the ceremony in London’s Green Park as veterans gathered to see the Queen unveil a memorial to tens of thousands of airmen who died in the Second World War. Mr Johnstone said: “The memorial is a good tribute to the fallen of Bomber Command. I would have liked to have gone to London to see it. “On the bombing tours I was a lot older than the others. The youngest members were normally the rear gunners who were usually 18. I was one of the many involved in Bomber Command and it was always a team effort. I made many friends. I did my duty.” Archie’s son, Robert Johnstone, 59, who lives Continued inside

Row over claim of county bias against women CLAIMS that women are bearing the brunt of county council cuts have been rejected by the ruling group. Terry Aldridge, county councillor for Skelmersdale Central ward, has condemned figures which show that 10,874 of the council’s employees had left in the past three years – 8,146 of them women. Cllr Aldridge said the figures, obtained by Labour opposition leader Councillor Jennifer Mein, showed that there was a bias against women workers. However, a county council spokesperson, stressed to The Champion that the figure was “a reflection of natural turnover” rather than posts lost as a result of spending cuts. And council leader Geoff Driver said that 9,000 posts had been filled. The spokesperson also said that a high proportion of the county council’s workforce are women, which would be reflected in the figures obtained by the Labour group. Cllr Aldridge said: “For that number of people to leave the county council is a disgrace, and sooner or later it’ll start to show in the services being provided. “From these figures, it’s clear that it’s women who are taking the brunt of the county council’s cuts – many who will be helping to make up a wage in the family home. “If a factory lost 11,000 workers, it’d make headline news, but with Lancashire County Council it’s crept up on us. It’s all very well and good saying we’ll freeze the rates, but that is a

Report by

David Simister hell of a lot of people to lose from your workforce.” Cllr Aldridge’s comments come after the figures were criticised by Labour opposition Councillor Jennifer Mein, who said that the figures showed it was women who were suffering the most at the hands of ‘the Tory–led government’s austerity’. County Councillor Geoff Driver, leader of the county council and of its Conservative group, rejected Labour claims, and said: “I am not sure what point the Labour Opposition are making. I don’t think they are being mischievous; I think they simply don’t understand the situation. “The figures they quote, which I reported to the last council meeting and also include those employed directly by schools, are indeed the number of staff who have left the council’s employment since June 2009 but the Labour Group seem not to have noticed that during the same period, we also filled over 9,000 posts. “This is the expected turnover of an organisation which employs over 43,000 staff and the net reduction of about 1,500 is as a result of the savings we have made in management, administration and other back office costs. The fact that 75% of the 11,000 posts were held by women should be no surprise to them either since 75% of the council’s staff are women.”

THE authorities have denied they are cutting the borough’s roadside grass verges less frequently as a result of cutbacks. The Champion has taken a number of pictures of verges in Lathom and Parbold where the grass is overgrown. However, bosses at Lancashire County Council are blaming the recent weather conditions for the long grass on many of the verges and the borough council say they are maintaining contract times for carrying out the work on the county’s behalf. Councillor John Fillis, the leader of the West Lancashire Labour group, said: “Manual labour is needed to cut the grass verges and you can’t cut staff and maintain services at the standard that people in West Lancashire expect. “There is not only a problem with grass verges, there is also an issue with weeding and general maintenance. People have complained to me about the weeding in Scott ward in Ormskirk. They said they could see the grass coming through. “What I have noticed is that where the Olympic Flame passed in West Lancashire the grass verges were maintained. “Staff are working hard, but there is only so much that you can do in a day. All the speeches at council won’t change that.” A borough council spokesman responded: “The grass verges belong to Lancashire County Council. “The borough council cuts them on behalf of the county council to an agreed specification. “There has been no budgetary cut. The contractual arrangements with the county council state that the borough council cut all the verges three times per year. “All the verges are cut in each round of grass cutting. The first round stated on April 3 and ended on April 24. “The second round of grass cutting was due to start on June 22, but actually began on June 20 and has already included the A59. This round of grass cutting is due to end on July 12. Round three of grass cutting begins on August 20 and is due to finish on September 10.” Andrew Burrows, county highways manager for West Lancashire, said: “Recent weather conditions including large amounts of rain and very sunny days have been very favourable growing conditions. The county council is responsible for the verges, but the management of the grass cutting is handled by the borough council, on our behalf.”

A WEST Lancashire College student has won a surprise chance of becoming a professional rugby league player . Dan Birkett, 24, who has recently completed a foundation degree in Sports and Exercise Therapies at the college, will be playing for Warrington Wolves first team Academy. While playing at Wigan St Patricks, Dan got called up to the Great Britain Amateur Squad in 2011 to tour Serbia where he was spotted by the Wolves. Dan said: “It’s always been a dream of mine to play professionally but I thought my time had passed at 24 years of age. I will definitely make the most of it as I know opportunities like this don’t come along often. It just goes to show that hard work and determination can pay off.” Dan also works as a personal trainer and duty manager at FX Leisure Gyms and said the course has benefited him in his work. “I can advise my clients of the correct exercises to do whilst recuperating from a sports injury.” Steve MacDonald, tutor on the foundation degree, said: “The hard work and determination that Dan has shown has really paid off. He’s managed to play rugby, hold down a job and complete his degree.”

West Lancashire man is rescued from sea Report by

Natasha Young

A 55–YEAR–OLD man, believed to be from Skelmersdale, had to be rescued from the sea in Southport during the early hours of Saturday morning (July 30), after he waded out to sea alone in Southport. Southport Lifeboat crews and police were called out the scene close to Southport Pier at around 5.20am where the man, believed to be from Skelmersdale, was reported to be up to his chest in water after wading out to sea alone. After being alerted of the incident by Liverpool Coastguard, Southport Lifeboat launched a rescue boat and two quad bikes to

carry out an “urgent but brief” search to find the man, who is understood to have been in Southport on a night out. A Southport Lifeboat spokesman said that when the man was located around a mile from the shore he was “overwhelmed by the waves and the incoming tide.” The man, who is said to have dialled 999 himself, had said to Liverpool Coastguard that he “wanted to swim to Barbados.” Once he was returned to safety on Southport beach by the lifeboat crew, who had carried out first aid during the dramatic rescue, he was transferred to waiting paramedics as he was sufferning from hypothermia. The man was then admitted to hospital for further treatment. natasha.young@champnews.com

The Whittingham family try out the tombola at the Rufford church fundraising event

Cream teas boost fund RUFFORD residents have raised hundreds of pounds at a summer event organised to help raise funds for the village church. Organisers of the event, held last Saturday (June 23), said that more that more £600 was raised to help pay for the yard at St Mary the Virgin Church, after visitors were treated to a host of events, including a raffle and a tombola, at the church hall. Alex Garden, one of the event’s organisers, said: “Delicious teas of strawberries, scones and cream were enjoyed by many. The weather was kind – not a drop of rain fell all afternoon. “There were many entries for the children’s drawing competition and stalls included plants, tombola, raffle and vegetables.” Pictured are members of the Whittingham family, from Rufford, trying their luck on the tombola at the church hall.

Portas cash bid is a fiasco when money is being wasted by council

I was shocked to see how Skem had changed since I lived there

I have been following the Mary Portas cash bid fiasco. It really has come to something when people believe the only hope for their town and community rests on the lottery of a celebrity bail out. What have the local council been doing all these years? Now I see (as reported in The Champion), that the council may receive a one–off sum of £100,000 from the government ‘to help the high streets buzz again.’ This is madness, and futile madness at that. The council is full of overpaid people with inflated job titles who have a track record of squandering public money on politically correct nonsense and vanity projects. These people have no idea about the real world. Whether businesses fail or not, does

I am now 79, but I remember Skelmersdale with much affection, even though I haven’t lived there for 50 years. My family moved to Skem when I was five, I was educated and lived there until I was 18. As a young child, I became familiar with all the highways and byways which made up my happy memories of Skem. I worked there and was very happy, but, like many young people, I wanted to expand my horizons, so I began to travel, experiencing new places and jobs in many parts of Britain, but I never forgot my roots within Skem. I eventually returned, then met the love of my life and married in a local church. For a while, we lived in Up Holland, then due to my husband’s occupation, we had to make the transfer to North Wales, where I still live. Sadly, my husband died some years ago. After his death I might have returned to Skem – I still

not matter to them. They will still receive their bloated salaries from the public purse. Many times I have given up trying to find a parking place in Ormskirk town centre and gone to the supermarket instead. Car parking is the main reason why people do not bother with town centres like they used to. I spoke to a ‘traffic technician’ at Lancashire County Council about parking issues in Ormskirk and his reply was: ‘People should use public transport.’ Nothing will improve, a £100,000 or not, until all the dead wood, busy doing nothing in the cloud–cuckoo ivory towers at county hall, is gotten rid of.

PICTURE of the week

have some family living there – but our children live here, so obviously I wished to remain near to them. Earlier this year, I made the journey to visit relatives. To say I was shocked at what I saw is an understatement. The Skem as I knew it had a special character all of its own. But the Skem I saw was unrecognisable to me. I didn’t recognise Sandy Lane nor other places I visited. There didn’t seem to be much of a special character. I dare say some readers will disagree, but my memories will precede many of the dissidents. Yes, there will always be changes, but surely the past must be remembered. Skem was in the Domesday Book, so surely it should be accorded more respect and dignity. Name and address supplied

www.champnews.com/pixonline We need to show

more compassion The ‘shoulds’, ‘musts’ and ‘oughts’ personalities of this world, are all too ready to dispense advice. I wonder if they could take it as easily? I ask the question in reply to the letter in the Champion (June 27) that suggests that a mother carries the pram, the child, and items up the stairs. Please don’t be so quick to judge this person as lazy, at a certain age children are very wriggly and difficult to manage, especially when tired. Carrying all this up a flight of stairs would not be sensible. Where is your imagination? Gone with all the ‘shoulds’ ‘musts’ and ‘oughts’ I expect. These superior beings always know better than every one else. They are the type that dish out ever such meaningful advice all over the place. What we need are some good ideas delivered with some compassion and less judgement. Indeed, some creative thinking may solve a problem, not advice that is impractical and possibly dangerous.

Cars should give Rail service for Skem could be priority to buses improved without a new line RE: letters in the Champion about bus drivers. As a frequent user of buses the thing that strikes me most is the time it often takes for a bus to re–enter the traffic flow from a bus stop. This appears to be mainly caused by the fact the on–coming traffic will not make way after the bus driver has pit his indicator out. In some countries they have a law giving a bus leaving a bus stop priority over all oncoming traffic. They all have to give way and allow the bus back into the traffic flow. This assists the bus driver but also helps to keep the bus on time. Name and adress supplied

I read with interest and fully support MP Rosie Cooper’s case for a rail link to serve Skelmersdale. I live in Up Holland. We have a railway and station. If it was upgraded by electrifying the line from Kirkby through to Wigan, with revamped and staffed stations, with a Sunday service, it could serve Skelmersdale at a fraction of the cost of routing a line through to the town. Opposite Pimbo garden centre there is a large field which could accommodate a car park, bus terminus and taxi rank. Another possibility would be to abandon the

existing station and build a new one further down the line towards Rainford,where the industrial estate ends. There is plenty of land for the infrastructure and a good road system serving the industrial estate which could easily manage the extra traffic and bus services. Either of these suggestions could be in place, saving a great deal of money and disruption and giving Skelmersdale, Crawford village and Up Holland a rail service which would benefit the local economies and take cars off the road.

Think before having children Regarding your article on Wednesday, June 20 about mums not being able to get their prams up the steps to their flats. Also, the previous week’s ‘sensational’ headline on the front cover. When are you going to interview some people who have worked hard, saved their money, married and then had children, or would that be too boring for the great unwashed to read? If these people who are complaining about their often free council accommodation thought before bringing children into the world, they would not be worrying about walking down a few stairs. Hopefully, you listened to David Cameron’s speech last week. Name supplied, By email

Knockout night out JAB Boxing Club from Ormskirk will stage an event at the Floral Hall in Southport which will see five hours of boxing entertainment. Competitors will range from office worker ‘first–timers’ to more experienced amateurs. The bouts will be refereed by former world title contender Andy Holligan from Liverpool, who lost to world great Julio Cesar in 1993 at the peak of his career. Organiser Sean Crowley said: “We have some great fights set up with local lads. The first bouts are our working men who we specialize

in training up for a once in a life time opportunity. Afterwards, we will move up the ladder to our experienced boxers who have past amateur records and are looking to still shine on the big stage. “Our last bout between Scott and Lee promises to be an absolute cracker and probably the biggest in unlicensed boxing. A limited number of tickets are still available with prices ranging from £30 to £55. For details call 0750 374 3218 or email info@jabboxing.co.uk The event starts at 6pm.

More time to pay council tax on cards

Councillor Neil Furey

Henry James

RESIDENTS in West Lancashire could be given the chance to pay their council tax bills in 12 monthly instalments instead of 10 under the present system. The Government is proposing to grant council tax payers the opportunity to pay by 12 monthly instalments, and it is thought that this will be passed with effect from April 2013, but it has not yet been approved by Parliament.

But councillor hits at benefit cuts plan At the moment, council tax payers are not charged for two months of the year and these months are normally February and March. The Government has said the aim of spreading the cost is to “help people with their cost of living.” The Tories also want to see electronic billing. Skelmersdale North Councillor Neil Furey said: “I welcome this Government

will mean that our poorest families will now have to pay more council tax than before. “I also welcome the announcement that Government wants council’s to use more electronic billing. Collection of council tax in West Lancashire has now been passed to BT outfit One Connect Limited and I will be calling on them to provide improved services for our residents.”

Music will be provided by Blues Rock band The Core who will perform some new pieces as well as classic covers. They will sing on the outdoor stage in the Wharf courtyard. Singer–songwriter, Andrew Holbrook, will be supporting The Core with a set of covers as well as one or two of his own numbers. Imogen said: “Like many of us, we have been affected by cancer in some way. MacMillan Cancer Support do a fantastic job and I wanted to do something to help them in return.”

A West Lancashire Council spokesman said: “The council would have to comply with any changes approved by parliament, just like any other authority that collects council tax. “Council members will be presented with a detailed report in relation to the proposed changes. “The government’s review examined the issue of separate council tax bills for annexes, some of which are known as ‘granny flats’. It now plans to carry out a broader review of this issue.”

MY collie dog Tina became a step–mum today – and it came as almost a big a surprise to me and my brother as it did to her! As I wrote a couple of weeks ago, my brother George tragically lost his long–time companion, Buttons, while we were on holiday. And with the idea of perhaps getting a pup sometime in the future, he phoned the kennels near Wakefield, wondering when they might be expecting collie pups. Totally unexpectedly, a litter had arrived just three weeks previously – and they had a collie pup just waiting to find a good home. So two trips to Wakefield on two consecutive weeks to meet the little bundle and make sure Tina seemed alright with her, then to collect her – and we became a two dog family again. Actually, things started better than I dared to hope. With Tina safely stowed in the rear of bro’s estate car, little Cinders (as in Buttons and Cinderella, get it?) completed her 90 minute journey with a minimum of fidgeting and squeaking – and more importantly from my point of view, no car sickness or weeing on my trousers. But just like in a television soap, getting the wicked step mum and orphaned daughter together proved not so easy has we had, perhaps naively, hoped. Not that Tina did behave evilly. She simply at first refused to accept that her domain had been invaded by a fluffy incomer with an endearingly waggy tail. In fact, for the first couple of hours or so she made a very convincing show of not realising there was any other animal there at all. Later in the evening, after I had taken Tina for her walk and given her a talking to as to how to behave towards a probably rather confused and lonely little puppy, she had second, and better, thoughts. She tried to ’talk’ to young Cinders. She prodded her with her nose, she followed her around the room. But now it as Cinders who was having none of it! It was the youngster who ignored the friendly advances of her now Fairy Godmother. Mind you, since at the moment Cinders’ time seems to vary between 10 minutes sleep and 10 minutes of frantic effort, I reckon that some positive progress is probably being made. I’ll keep you updated. Meanwhile, on a different track as it were, could I add my congratulations to Merseyrail after they were voted ’Best for Customer Satisfaction’ amongst UK train operators? Merseyside is fortunate in its local rail services. Our trains may not be new – in fact they are rather elderly – but you’d never know it. After their refurbishment a few years ago they are up with the best in ambience. And we are promised new ones quite soon – bespoke new ones at that, not the hand–me–downs from the South East we were threatened with. We also have an actual train service which it would be churlish to complain about at all. Merseyrail’s punctuality and reliability records are also always at or near the top of the national league tables. Stations too are being improved out of all recognition. The two I use most, Maghull and Ormskirk, are now smashing! But it is the staff who should really take the credit. They are friendly, helpful and cheery. And just for that I’d vote for Merseyrail any day.

Merseyrail named top performer in monthly charts MERSEYRAIL has been named the best performing train operator in the UK. The public transport company recorded performance levels of 98% – the operators’ highest ever score – between Sunday, May 27 until Saturday, June 23, this year. This rail industry–wide benchmark, known as the public performance measure, takes into account arrival times at final destinations, cancellations and stopping at all designated stops. Scores are published every four weeks. According to Merseyrail, for 16 days of this four week period, Merseyrail recorded performance of 99% and there were five days when reliability was at 100%. This means that all trains arrived at their final destinations within five minutes of the scheduled

time, there were no cancellations and all trains stopped at every stop. Merseyrail also noted their success was due to the contribution of Network Rail, who had no significant infrastructure issues across the network. Maarten Spaargaren, managing director of Merseyrail, said: ‘ I am delighted that Merseyrail is leading the way in service performance, I am very proud of my Merseyrail colleagues, it is their achievement. “It is their consistent hard work and attention to detail that is allowing us to reach these fantastic performance levels. Together with Network Rail we will strive to continue to provide the same top class experience for all our passengers.”

MORE than 40 years of friendship ws recognised by a Rotarians presentation. The annual exchange between the Rotary Clubs of Ormskirk and Ithaca in the State of Michigan, USA took place recently. This year, Chelsey and Jillian Foster came over from the USA, and stayed at the home of the Rtn Norman Cunliffe who was the visitor to Ithaca last year. This exchange has taken place now for over 40 years and in recognition of this, a citation was given by the city of Ithaca.

THE borough’s MP has had a meeting with one of the world’s best known spiritual leaders when he paid a visit to Westminster. Rosie Cooper met the Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader and Nobel Peace Prize winner the Dalai Lama who addressed Parliament on issues of international development. Ms Cooper said: “It was a great honour and privilege to have what is a once–in–a–lifetime opportunity to hear from and meet His Holiness the Dalai Lama. He is the embodiment of someone who has a set of values and lives by those values, not simply preaches them – a man, who has dedicated his life in the service of the Tibetan people leading their cause for liberation. “His Holiness talked about the importance of education and the need to have food for the mind as well as the body. He talked about how we achieve happiness through contentment not through material possessions. As a spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama also touched on religion and the need for us to respect all religions and to have faith in yours.” The Dalai Lama, who leads the Tibetan Buddhists in exile following the China’s occupation of the region, won the Nobel Peace Prize for his non violent campaign against the occupation of Tibet.

Members of Banks Brass Band.

Brass band invited to play at World War I battlefields A GROUP of musicians from Banks are to travel to the battlefields of northern France to play a poignant performance in tribute to those who lost their lives in the First World War. After being given a grant by Lancashire County Councillor Malcolm Barron, the group will cross the channel in September to give a series of concerts in northern France and Belgium. Bandmaster Allan Johnson said: “We’re very much looking forward to paying tribute to the 19 men of Banks who fell in the Great

War and are named on the memorial at St Stephen’s church. “The idea for the trip came about when one of our band members read a book which named all the men of Southport who were killed and discovered that a member of Banks Brass Band was amongst them.” The band will begin their tour with a stay in Ypres on September 28, before travelling to France where they will play a service in the cemetery in Arras on the Somme. Three men from Banks are commemorated there, including Private

Thomas Ryding who was a member of the band. On Saturday, September 28 they will play at the daily evening service at the Menin Gate memorial in Ypres, while the following day they will play at Tyne Cot cemetery near Passchendaele to honour three Banks men who are commemorated there before leaving for home. They will also lay wreaths at all three locations. The funding has come from the county council’s Local Grants Fund, which sees each county council member given £3,000 each year to support good causes in their ward.

Bike ride to aid Syrian victims A BANKS businessman is planning to ride the length of Britain in a bid to raise £20,000 to help the relief effort in Syria. Brian Johnston, of kitchen worktop specialists Granite

House, will be among a group taking part in a bike ride from Land’s End to John ‘o’ Groats to help raise funds for Syrian Relief. The group, which sets off

from the Cornish coast on July 26, will be joined by former Olympic and Commonwealth Games athlete Andrew Slater, and will help to raise funds for Syrian doctors.

MP Rosie Cooper at the West Lancashire carers lunch

MP salutes carers for ‘incredible job’ Positively the Best Buyer of Houses, Land and Investment Properties in Liverpool

THE “incredible job” done by West Lancashire carers has been celebrated as part of Carers Week. MP Rosie Cooper attended a lunch tribute at the new Brookside Care and Retirement Home in Ormskirk, which was organised by West Lancashire Carers Centre to thank carers. Ms Cooper said: “It was a real pleasure to have the opportunity to meet with carers from across West Lancashire and to thank them for the incredible job they do in providing care. The work they do and their commitment often goes unnoticed and unacknowledged. “Having a chance to listen to people’s stories about their caring responsibilities and what it demands was a stark reminder of the pressure many families are under to provide support and care. “There are six million people in the UK with caring responsibilities, providing essential help and support to family and friends who need care, saving the public purse an estimated £87 billion each year.

“As a carer myself I understand daily challenges carers have to face. Indeed many carers don’t even consider themselves to be a carer – usually husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, friends – all of them make an invaluable contribution to our society which may affect their own health and well–being. Carer’s Week highlights these people and I want them to know that there is help available and that they are much appreciated. “I would like to take this opportunity to thank every carer in West Lancashire for the tireless hard work they do. Greater recognition of carers is an issue I’ve raised in Parliament and I promise to continue to fight for a better deal for carers, the unsung heroes in our community.” Marian Radford, principal officer at West Lancashire Carers Centre, said: “It was fantastic that during Carer’s Week, which is a celebration and recognition of the work that carers do, our local MP Rosie came to meet with us and showed her support.”

Bridal Wear display by

Recent newly wed Kelly Gilboy attended the Bridal Fayre last September, before deciding to hold both the ceremony and reception at ‘The Prince of Wales’ this May. When asked about the role the wedding fayre played in her plans she said: “The wedding fayre was a vital part of my preparation, it really helped get my ideas going. I got the ideas for favours, how to dress the room and also got to meet the events team. The staff made the day special, they treated us like family and really went the extra mile to make it a success. It was the best day of my life and I’m so glad we had it there.” So come to The Prince of Wales Bridal Fayre, a must for every happy couple looking to live Happily Ever After.

The Champion • Wednesday 4 July 2012

Is a fun drive worth the long strive? OVER the past week or two I’ve been bugged by one of driving’s most important questions. Do I go the quick way or the fun one? Obviously, this question doesn’t work with every drive in mind. Planning a classic car run along the M6 rather than down the country lanes isn’t going to work, largely because you risk littering the hard shoulders with Austin A35s and Morris Minors. I also imagine that turning up late to the birth of your firstborn child because you went “the fun way” to the hospital is going to land you with a monumental telling–off. But it’s an important question all the same.

Life on Cars by

David Simister

I know this because I’ve been planning, with military levels of precision, a holiday which involves driving all the way to the Norfolk Broads. Anyone who’s ever looked at a road atlas will know that there’s no one route which jumps off the page as being the obvious way between here and windmill country. So do I go the sensible way or the fun one? But do you really want to drive a car with a chassis that composed down the motorway? Of course you don’t, which is why I went the fun way, threading my way

through the twisty mountain passes over the Pennines before blatting across the flatness of Lincolnshire, and to hell with the journey time. As it turns out, there was only about half an hour in it, and in the company of the headbanger from Hethel proved to be a memorable old bit of motoring fun. Now I’ve got to do it all over again, however, in an old Rover, which despite being considerably cheaper and comfier doesn’t stop, steer or go anything like as well as Norfolk’s very own 911 chaser. So will I go the sensible way or the fun one? I’ll let you know when I get back... david.simister@champnews.com

ORMSKIRK had to settle for a draw on another rain–hit day on Saturday when they were unable to wrap up what seemed a likely victory over Rainford. Opener Ian Robinson scored 110 not out from 125 balls including one six and 13 fours, in a second wicket partnership of 142 with Matthew Knight (56) as Ormskirk posted an impressive total of 220–2 declared off 41.2 overs. In reply opener Nick Hendrie hit 67 while Martyn Farrell claimed four wickets for 38 as Rainford finsihed on 145–7 off after 35 overs. Elsewhere in the Liverpool & District Cricket Competition Premier Division Southport & Birkdale took 61 overs to reach 212–8 declared at New Brighton, thanks to Mitchell Quinn (51), skipper Chris Firth (32*), Dave Aston (25), Logan Weston (23) and 22 from the returning Josh Hine with Martyn Evans taking 5–57.

ADVERSE weather disrupted the local derby match between Skelmersdale and Burscough. The game miraculously started just an hour late when the pitch dried quickly after a thunderstorm. Skelmersdale scored 200 for 8 declared, thanks mainly to a

delightful innings from Jonas Smith (83), and Sunny Gandhi (44). In making the declaration Skelmersdale had to bear in mind that they were without three of their main–line bowlers, Andrew Griffiths, Ben Maddocks, and James Edgar. The start to the Burscough innings was

also delayed due to light rain. Skelmersdale made an early breakthrough, but Burscough’s overseas professional Brendan Domigan (44 not out) stubbornly remained at the crease, and at the close they held on for a draw at 89 for 5. The draw meant that Skelmersdale remain in

The visitors elected to bat and were soon in trouble as Watts took two wickets in two balls, as Orrell were bowled out for 107 with Adnan Malik taking 6–32. In reply an undefeated 70 from the prolific Neil Rimmer and 20 from Derek Sykes helped set up the hosts and despite the loss of two late needless wickets it meant they eased to victory by six wickets. Formby hosted Newton le Willows and scored 225 in 53.2 overs, with Anthony Poole scoring 100, skipper Andy Halpin 35 and Lawrence Armstrong 29. The visitors’ reply was cut short by the rain when they looked well set on 144–3, with skipper Mark Wilkie and Dave Fearnley both making half centuries. Ainsdale made the most of a rain shortened game to move up to third place in the table with a 19 run home win over bottom placed Alder. The hosts made 134–2. In reply 6–32 from Adam Friar helped dismiss the visitors for 115 to wrap up victory.

Couple’s plea over sewage stench at flats

Rain to blame for overgrown verges

OLDEST BOMBER VET HAILS WAR TRIBUTE Archie, 97, is delighted as Queen opens memorial Report by

Archie Johnstone, who navigated more 50 wartime bombing missions, pictured with a Lancaster Bomber at a squadron reunion.

Henry James

THE oldest surviving member of RAF Bomber Command who lives in West Lancashire has welcomed the memorial to his brave comrades after years of waiting. Archie Johnstone, 97, was unable to attend the ceremony in London’s Green Park as veterans gathered to see the Queen unveil a memorial to tens of thousands of airmen who died in the Second World War. Mr Johnstone said: “The memorial is a good tribute to the fallen of Bomber Command. I would have liked to have gone to London to see it. “On the bombing tours I was a lot older than the others. The youngest members were normally the rear gunners who were usually 18. I was one of the many involved in Bomber Command and it was always a team effort. I made many friends. I did my duty.” Archie’s son, Robert Johnstone, 59, who lives Continued inside

‘Awful raw sewage stench makes flat unsafe for our baby’

A COUPLE from Skelmersdale are pleading to be able to move from their Digmoor council home as a sewage problem at the flats is making the property unsuitable for their baby. Dave Murrell, 36, and Carla Appleton, 22, of Beechtrees smelt the stench of raw sewage coming from the inside drains when entering and leaving the building soon after moving in. The health visitor, who has seen and smelt the problem at the flats, recently wrote a letter to the council with her concerns. Dave said: “At its worst the drains smell like a sewage plant. We have complained over 20 times over the last eight months. “The health visitor wrote their concerned letter about three weeks ago and believes we should be moved. “On some days the sewage can overflow and it can be up to your

A 55–YEAR–OLD man, believed to be from Skelmersdale, had to be rescued from the sea in Southport during the early hours of Saturday morning (July 30), after he waded out to sea alone. Southport Lifeboat crews and police were called out the scene close to Southport Pier at around 5.20am where the man was reported to be up to his chest in water after wading out to sea alone. After being alerted of the incident by Liverpool Coastguard, Southport Lifeboat launched a rescue boat and two quad bikes to carry out an “urgent but brief” search to find the man, who is understood to have been in Southport on a night out. A Southport Lifeboat spokesman said that when the man was located around a mile from the shore he was “overwhelmed by the waves and the incoming tide.” The man, who is said to have dialled 999 himself, had said to Liverpool Coastguard that he “wanted to swim to Barbados.” Once he was returned to safety on Southport beach by the lifeboat crew, who had carried out first

ankles as you walk in the building.” The couple believe the problem is caused by the raw sewage from “all of the flats” in the building backing up. “My mum came up for Christmas, but went home on Boxing Day because she could not stand the smell,” Dave added. “People in all of the flats have been complaining about the smell and not just us.” Carla’s step father, Ken Speakman, added: “The baby’s health visitor has encountered the stench problem several times, and she has written to the borough council stating that the property is not suitable to raise a child in, but still the borough council has shown an unwillingness to help or rehouse them.” A borough council spokesman said: “The last two occasions the council’s drainage team has been to the site in response to complaints they have found the drain to be full of cooking fat. “This has solidified and completely blocked the drain which is likely to have caused some problems for the

tenants. We would advise tenants to avoid pouring cooking fat down sinks or toilets, or disposing of other items in this way that are likely to cause a blockage in the drains and cause inconvenience to themselves and other tenants. “This number of visits to blocked drains on blocks of flats is not uncommon and can be attributed to various causes. “We have no record of other calls made from the flats and have not received any communications from a health visitor concerning the conditions within the flat.” The health visitor was employed by Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust which said: “We are unable to comment on individual cases. However, if a health visitor is concerned or identifies a wider health issue, it is appropriate for them to highlight this to the relevant organisation as part of their role in trying to ensure children and their families live in the most suitable accommodation for their needs.”

MORE than £1,800 was raised for a dance stage at Delph Side at the primary’s school’s carnival. Around 500 people turned up for the event on Saturday, June 16 which was set to be held on the school field, but because of the bad weather, was switched to the school hall. Peppa Pig and George, who opened the carnival, were a favourite with the youngsters. Berenise Gardner, a parent helper at Delph Side who helped organise the carnival, along with teaching assistant Marie Clements, said: “The weather was poor, but we had a good turnout and the day was successful. “The event was a fantastic opportunity for the community to come together and people were able to show off their different talents. “Children will now appreciate the dance stage as they have realised how much hard work it takes to fundraise. Visitors were asked to bring unwanted items from home to be sold at the event while the pupils themselves created items to be sold. Entertainment at the carnival also included the school choir, children’s entertainer Damian Noone, the Delph Side Dancers, the Chamones, former Stars in Their Eyes winner Paul McCoy, Tanhouse Morris Dancers, and the Decree Absolute band.

Family to hold footie fundraiser for Joseph Henry James

FAMILY and friends of Joseph Stockton are to hold the third fundraiser for the four–year–old who has a rare neurological disorder. The Joseph Stockton Football Family Fundraiser will take place at Glenburn Sports College’s 3G pitch between 1pm and 4pm on Sunday, July 15. Joseph, from Inglewhite, has Miller Dieker syndrome which means he will not develop past the characteristics of a six–month–old. He is fed through a tube in his stomach, he does not sit up, he doesn’t talk and has epilepsy but in the last 12 months his health has been good. On July 15 there will be a football game between a team led by Joseph’s dad, Peter Stockton, 32, (Stocky’s Reds), and a family friend, Paul Bird (Birdy’s Blues). Each team will contain a squad of 15 players. The Birdy’s Blues team has won the first two games in 2010 and 2011 . Other activities on the day will include stalls, raffle, tombola, bouncy castle, food and drink, musical movement, insect handling and face painting. Peter Stockton said: “Money raised from the day will go towards Joseph’s trust fund, it will also go towards buying an item for Kingsbury’s School’s sensory room as Joseph is a pupil there. “A donation will also be made to the Remembering Rebecca Charity, which was set up to

GRASS verges in West Lancashire are not being cut any less frequently this year say council bosses, despite various sightings of overgrown areas across the borough. Champion photographer Martyn Snape took these pictures of grass verges in Lathom and Parbold where the grass by the roadside is overgrown but bosses at Lancashire County Council say it is due to the wet weather and have denied that maintenance of the verges has been affected by budget cutbacks. Councillor John Fillis, the leader of the West Lancashire Labour group blamed staff cuts. He said: “Manual labour is needed to cut the grass verges and you can’t cut staff and maintain services at the standard that people in West Lancashire expect. “There is not only a problem with grass verges, but also an issue with weeding and general maintenance. “What I have noticed is that where the Olympic Flame passed in West Lancashire the grass verges were maintained. “Staff are working hard, but there is only so much that you can do in a day.” West Lancashire Borough Council, however, say contract times for carrying out the cutting are the same as before. A council spokesman said: “The borough council cuts them on behalf of the county council to an agreed specification. There has been no

The contractual arrangements with the county council state that the borough council cuts all the verges three times per year. “All the verges are cut in each round of grass cutting. “The first round stated on April 3 and ended on April 24. “The second round of grass cutting was due to start on June 22, but actually began on June 20 and has already included the A59.

POLICE are investigating a spate of thefts from vehicles in Skelmersdale on one night last week. The incidents happened throughout evening of Thursday, June 28 and the morning of Friday, June 29.

You were supposed to only do a tour of 30 flights and then be retired, but he flew between 50 and 55 flights.” Archie who lives in Birch Green Care Home in Skelmersdale was also involved in sinking the German ship The Tirpitz. When the war started, Archie was a policeman in Windermere and as the police force was a Reserve Occupation he was not drafted into the armed forces. In 1942–43 when the war was going badly the police were told they could join the Commandos or Bomber Command. Archie decided to join Bomber Command as he

Physio told ‘you need help to cure internet pornography addiction’ Report by

Lynda Roughley

A PYHSIOTHERAPIST caught with indecent images on his computer was addicted to internet porn, a court was told. When police raided Gavin Thorn’s home in Skelmersdale they seized his computer and sent it for analysis. Experts then discovered a total of 221 indecent images. Liverpool Crown Court heard that while most were in the least serious category, 39 were in the second most severe group and there was also one of involving a computer generated child abuse image. Thorn, aged 48, of Kestrel Mews,

pleaded guilty to 24 offences of possessing indecent images on April 20 last year. Judge John Phipps said: “You have an unhealthy addiction to internet pornography. “You need help to cure you of that. “It is wholly wrong for anybody to go on the internet and look at these disgraceful images of abused and exploited children.” He told Thorn, who has no previous convictions, that if he sent him to prison it would inevitably be for a short period and he would not receive help. Instead he imposed a three–year supervision order with attendance on an internet sex offenders’ programme. “You have to change your attitudes

and to develop self–control in order to prevent further offending.” He ordered him to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register for five years and imposed a ten year Sexual Offences Prevention Order which restricts his internet use. Paul Becker, defending, said that if Thorn had not initially realised how wrong his behaviour was he certainly did now. “He knows he has done wrong and is deeply ashamed and embarrassed and has lost his good name forever.” He said that Thorn, who cares for his blind partner, has had difficulties in his life but hopefully he can now be helped to lead a happier life. He has not worked since August last year and has no plans to resume work, said Mr Becker.

Robert said: “My dad is glad the memorial has been established, but he wishes it was built 30 years ago, if it had been he would have been able to see it himself.” More than 5,000 surviving airmen joined the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and other members of the Royal Family in Green Park for the unveiling of a memorial featuring a 9ft bronze sculpture depicting a seven–man bomber crew returning from a wartime mission. The £7million Portland stone memorial also has been given the blessing of the German people, after an inscription was included that commemorates all the lives lost in the bombings of 1939–45.

He was involved in the sinking of the Tirpitz in 1944 – which marked the end of Germany’s naval war in northern waters. The Tirpitz had been at anchor in Kaa Fjord in Northern Norway. “It was very important to destroy the Tirpitz,” Robert commented. “My dad does not like to be talked about as a war hero and he says he was just doing his job.

Groups combine to combat area’s cannabis crime wave Report by

Henry James

CANNABIS growers in West Lancashire are being targeted as part of a new partnership to crack down on the crime. The Cannabis Cultivation Group – which includes the borough council, the police and fire service – was set up after 87 dwellings were found to have cannabis growing in them in 2010 and 2011. The council believe residents are being paid or coerced into giving over either their property or rooms within their property to grow cannabis. Of the 87 cannabis factories found in 2010 and 2011, 37 were in homes owned by the borough council and 50 were in properties owned by private landlords, other associations, or were privately owned. Properties in Digmoor, Tanhouse, Skelmersdale South and Birch Green were raided along with others in Aughton, Downholland, Bickerstaffe, Burscough East, Halsall, Ashurst, Derby, Scott and Moorside. One property had 120 cannabis plants growing inside. Cannabis is a Class B drug and growing it is a crime which leads to more drugs being on our streets. This in turn increases social problems including further crimes. Some growers may also be putting their neighbours’ lives in danger as they bypass electricity meters, making unsafe and illegal connections to the electricity network to steal power for lamps and growing equipment. This can create a very serious risk of fire. One borough council tenant living in Tanhouse was caught growing the drug and

Partners set to tackle cannabis crime –members of the Cannabis Cultivation Group has been prosecuted and evicted from his home. In another case a council tenant’s partner was prosecuted for growing cannabis in her home in Digmoor and she was evicted. Two more are in the process of being evicted, while two more have left their property to avoid being evicted. Now the new group is calling for community support to help the crackdown by providing information on growers. Councillor Val Hopley, cabinet member for landlord services, said: “Council tenants should also be aware that if they are caught growing cannabis in their homes we will take

There has also been an increase in violence linked to organized crime groups and drug dealing.

PLANS to build a care home on the site of a former petrol station in Ormskirk have been blocked by West Lancashire councilors. Members of the borough council’s planning committee voted at a meeting last Thursday night (June 21) to refuse permission for a three–storey care home on the site of the former Esso filling station on County Road, amid concerns the new development would be visually obtrusive, particularly due to its prominence to nearby Coronation Park.

Walk on the safe side in record bid Report by

Henry James

A SKELMERSDALE primary school is waiting to hear whether it has walked its way to a world record. Eighty four children from Moorside primary joined a nation–wide walking bus event as part of the Kids Say Slow Down campaign devised by road safety charity Brake. The supervised children walked around the grounds of Moorside s part of Brake’s attempt to beat its own world record. More than 120,000 youngsters across the UK walked for road safety in the country on the same day. A spokesperson for the charity said they were still waiting for the final count–up before being able to to claim a new giant walking bus record. The Brake campaign aims to raise awareness of the dangers of traffic, the benefits of walking and raises funds for Brake’s services for road crash victims. The Moorside youngsters were sponsored to take part in the walking bus by family and friends and the school said they, “have raised a considerable amount of money for the charity.” Collette Smalley from the school, said: “The children really enjoyed the event. It helped raise awareness of road safety among them.” Also present were Alan Sephton, the school’s lollipop man, and community police officer Rob Mckee. The day was organised by Olive McSorley, the home school mentor at Moorside. Brake has said the UK has one of the worst death rates in Europe of children killed on foot, most on their way to or from school. The charity added that the day also aimed to cut down on the number of children driven to school. They say half UK’s kids are driven to school, increasing pollution and danger.

Bench spruce–up part of ‘big difference’ scheme VANDALISED benches in Skelmersdale town centre have been refurbished by the borough council. The 13 benches are in the Plaza close to the Concourse, the police station, library and Nye Bevan swimming pool. The council has said the work is part of a new commitment to invest £50,000 in the coming year in small projects that “make a big difference”. Councillor Andrew Fowler, the council’s

Henry James

cabinet member for public realm, said: “We appreciate that people want to see their local area smart, tidy and well cared–for and so the council has put aside £50,000 to tackle some small but important projects where, by investing a little money and work, we can make a big difference.

“The benches in Skelmersdale town centre had been damaged by vandals and had fallen into disrepair over the years. Now I’m delighted to see that the benches have been refurbished and smartened up. “I’m sure local people will appreciate the difference this has made to the area – and that we get some better weather so they can sit on the benches in the sunshine.” The council has said it is now embarking on a number of improvement projects.

Young Banksys get chance to shine with legal subway art Report by

Henry James

TEENAGERS are invited to a Skelmersdale event where they will be able to create legal urban art and edvelop their talent. The Banksbarn Skatepark Jam event will take place this Saturday and Sunday, starting at 11am until 5pm. It is being organised by UthinkCIC, which is a not–for–profit organisation and has received funding of £1,275 from County Councillor Mark Perks, Lancashire County Council’s cabinet member for young people. The organisation aims to work with others in Skelmersdale to provide more legal spaces for young

artists to practise their urban art skills, without fear of prosecution. “Skelmersdale has a number of subways that have been vandalised and we would like the opportunity to turn some, if not all of them, in to working galleries for young up–and–coming artists,” said Gary Pate who works with the young people. “The event is aimed at tackling issues around visual vandalism and the increase of tagging. Much like, but not to be confused with urban art, tagging is signing your name or other representation of yourself on anywhere public. “Unlike urban art, tagging takes less skill and is done in one colour with a single

can of spray paint or thick marker.” County Councillor Perks will be attending the event. He commented: “The work UthinkCIC is doing with young street artists in Skelmersdale to give them alternative spaces to express themselves is superb. “With its many subways, Skelmersdale has been badly affected by graffiti and other forms of visual vandalism. It would be great to turn at least some of those subways into working galleries. “I am very much looking forward to attending the Banksbarn Skatepark Jam and seeing for myself the work the young artists have produced.”

LETTERS to the Editor

Portas cash bid is a fiasco when money is being wasted by council

I was shocked to see how Skem had changed since I lived there

I have been following the Mary Portas cash bid fiasco. It really has come to something when people believe the only hope for their town and community rests on the lottery of a celebrity bail out. What have the local council been doing all these years? Now I see (as reported in The Champion), that the council may receive a one–off sum of £100,000 from the government ‘to help the high streets buzz again.’ This is madness, and futile madness at that. The council is full of overpaid people with inflated job titles who have a track record of squandering public money on politically correct nonsense and vanity projects. These people have no idea about the real world. Whether businesses fail or not, does

I am now 79, but I remember Skelmersdale with much affection, even though I haven’t lived there for 50 years. My family moved to Skem when I was five, I was educated and lived there until I was 18. As a young child, I became familiar with all the highways and byways which made up my happy memories of Skem. I worked there and was very happy, but, like many young people, I wanted to expand my horizons, so I began to travel, experiencing new places and jobs in many parts of Britain, but I never forgot my roots within Skem. I eventually returned, then met the love of my life and married in a local church. For a while, we lived in Up Holland, then due to my husband’s occupation, we had to make the transfer to North Wales, where I still live. Sadly, my husband died some years ago. After his death I might have returned to Skem – I still

not matter to them. They will still receive their bloated salaries from the public purse. Many times I have given up trying to find a parking place in Ormskirk town centre and gone to the supermarket instead. Car parking is the main reason why people do not bother with town centres like they used to. I spoke to a ‘traffic technician’ at Lancashire County Council about parking issues in Ormskirk and his reply was: ‘People should use public transport.’ Nothing will improve, a £100,000 or not, until all the dead wood, busy doing nothing in the cloud–cuckoo ivory towers at county hall, is gotten rid of. Stephen Prunetti, By email

PICTURE of the week

have some family living there – but our children live here, so obviously I wished to remain near to them. Earlier this year, I made the journey to visit relatives. To say I was shocked at what I saw is an understatement. The Skem as I knew it had a special character all of its own. But the Skem I saw was unrecognisable to me. I didn’t recognise Sandy Lane nor other places I visited. There didn’t seem to be much of a special character. I dare say some readers will disagree, but my memories will precede many of the dissidents. Yes, there will always be changes, but surely the past must be remembered. Skem was in the Domesday Book, so surely it should be accorded more respect and dignity. Name and address supplied

www.champnews.com/pixonline We need to show

more compassion The ‘shoulds’, ‘musts’ and ‘oughts’ personalities of this world, are all too ready to dispense advice. I wonder if they could take it as easily? I ask the question in reply to the letter in the Champion (June 27) that suggests that a mother carries the pram, the child, and items up the stairs. Please don’t be so quick to judge this person as lazy, at a certain age children are very wriggly and difficult to manage, especially when tired. Carrying all this up a flight of stairs would not be sensible. Where is your imagination? Gone with all the ‘shoulds’ ‘musts’ and ‘oughts’ I expect. These superior beings always know better than every one else. They are the type that dish out ever such meaningful advice all over the place. What we need are some good ideas delivered with some compassion and less judgement. Indeed, some creative thinking may solve a problem, not advice that is impractical and possibly dangerous.

Cars should give Rail service for Skem could be priority to buses improved without a new line RE: letters in the Champion about bus drivers. As a frequent user of buses the thing that strikes me most is the time it often takes for a bus to re–enter the traffic flow from a bus stop. This appears to be mainly caused by the fact the on–coming traffic will not make way after the bus driver has pit his indicator out. In some countries they have a law giving a bus leaving a bus stop priority over all oncoming traffic. They all have to give way and allow the bus back into the traffic flow. This assists the bus driver but also helps to keep the bus on time. Name and adress supplied

I read with interest and fully support MP Rosie Cooper’s case for a rail link to serve Skelmersdale. I live in Up Holland. We have a railway and station. If it was upgraded by electrifying the line from Kirkby through to Wigan, with revamped and staffed stations, with a Sunday service, it could serve Skelmersdale at a fraction of the cost of routing a line through to the town. Opposite Pimbo garden centre there is a large field which could accommodate a car park, bus terminus and taxi rank. Another possibility would be to abandon the

Write to the Editor at Clare House, 166 Lord Street, Southport PR9 0QA

existing station and build a new one further down the line towards Rainford,where the industrial estate ends. There is plenty of land for the infrastructure and a good road system serving the industrial estate which could easily manage the extra traffic and bus services. Either of these suggestions could be in place, saving a great deal of money and disruption and giving Skelmersdale, Crawford village and Up Holland a rail service which would benefit the local economies and take cars off the road.

Think before having children Regarding your article on Wednesday, June 20 about mums not being able to get their prams up the steps to their flats. Also, the previous week’s ‘sensational’ headline on the front cover. When are you going to interview some people who have worked hard, saved their money, married and then had children, or would that be too boring for the great unwashed to read? If these people who are complaining about their often free council accommodation thought before bringing children into the world, they would not be worrying about walking down a few stairs.

The Champion • Wednesday 4 July 2012

Is a fun drive worth the long strive? OVER the past week or two I’ve been bugged by one of driving’s most important questions. Do I go the quick way or the fun one? Obviously, this question doesn’t work with every drive in mind. Planning a classic car run along the M6 rather than down the country lanes isn’t going to work, largely because you risk littering the hard shoulders with Austin A35s and Morris Minors. I also imagine that turning up late to the birth of your firstborn child because you went “the fun way” to the hospital is going to land you with a monumental telling–off. But it’s an important question all the same.

Life on Cars by

David Simister

I know this because I’ve been planning, with military levels of precision, a holiday which involves driving all the way to the Norfolk Broads. Anyone who’s ever looked at a road atlas will know that there’s no one route which jumps off the page as being the obvious way between here and windmill country. So do I go the sensible way or the fun one? But do you really want to drive a car with a chassis that composed down the motorway? Of course you don’t, which is why I went the fun way, threading my way

through the twisty mountain passes over the Pennines before blatting across the flatness of Lincolnshire, and to hell with the journey time. As it turns out, there was only about half an hour in it, and in the company of the headbanger from Hethel proved to be a memorable old bit of motoring fun. Now I’ve got to do it all over again, however, in an old Rover, which despite being considerably cheaper and comfier doesn’t stop, steer or go anything like as well as Norfolk’s very own 911 chaser. So will I go the sensible way or the fun one? I’ll let you know when I get back... david.simister@champnews.com

ORMSKIRK had to settle for a draw on another rain–hit day on Saturday when they were unable to wrap up what seemed a likely victory over Rainford. Opener Ian Robinson scored 110 not out from 125 balls including one six and 13 fours, in a second wicket partnership of 142 with Matthew Knight (56) as Ormskirk posted an impressive total of 220–2 declared off 41.2 overs. In reply opener Nick Hendrie hit 67 while Martyn Farrell claimed four wickets for 38 as Rainford finsihed on 145–7 off after 35 overs. Elsewhere in the Liverpool & District Cricket Competition Premier Division Southport & Birkdale took 61 overs to reach 212–8 declared at New Brighton, thanks to Mitchell Quinn (51), skipper Chris Firth (32*), Dave Aston (25), Logan Weston (23) and 22 from the returning Josh Hine with Martyn Evans taking 5–57. In reply the hosts slipped to 46–3, but an unbeaten 121 from Neil Cross

Former Worcestershire star Paul Pollard is welcomed to Fleetwood by chairman Alan Green. and 64 from John While made sure they soon recovered to reach 218–5 to wrap up victory in 39.2 overs. Hightown elected to bat first at Maghull and after several rain interruptions were bowled out for 186, with skipper Shaun Vosloo scoring 47 and Gareth Glynne–Jones making 41, whilst Sabah Ghaus took 5–44 for the hosts. In reply Maghull had reached 6–0 off 5.1 overs when heavy rain abandon play for the day.

ADVERSE weather disrupted the local derby match between Skelmersdale and Burscough. The game miraculously started just an hour late when the pitch dried quickly after a thunderstorm. Skelmersdale scored 200 for 8 declared, thanks mainly to a

delightful innings from Jonas Smith (83), and Sunny Gandhi (44). In making the declaration Skelmersdale had to bear in mind that they were without three of their main–line bowlers, Andrew Griffiths, Ben Maddocks, and James Edgar. The start to the Burscough innings was

also delayed due to light rain. Skelmersdale made an early breakthrough, but Burscough’s overseas professional Brendan Domigan (44 not out) stubbornly remained at the crease, and at the close they held on for a draw at 89 for 5. The draw meant that Skelmersdale remain in

Andrew Watts, who took charge of a side including ex–Nottinghamshire and Worcestershire batsman Paul Pollard. The visitors elected to bat and were soon in trouble as Watts took two wickets in two balls, as Orrell were bowled out for 107 with Adnan Malik taking 6–32. In reply an undefeated 70 from the prolific Neil Rimmer and 20 from Derek Sykes helped set up the hosts and despite the loss of two late needless wickets it meant they eased to victory by six wickets. Formby hosted Newton le Willows and scored 225 in 53.2 overs, with Anthony Poole scoring 100, skipper Andy Halpin 35 and Lawrence Armstrong 29. The visitors’ reply was cut short by the rain when they looked well set on 144–3, with skipper Mark Wilkie and Dave Fearnley both making half centuries. Ainsdale made the most of a rain shortened game to move up to third place in the table with a 19 run home win over bottom placed Alder. The hosts made 134–2. In reply 6–32 from Adam Friar helped dismiss the visitors for 115 to wrap up victory.
